Our A Liner gets some attention from other campers. Usually I offer to let them look inside & they’re surprised how much room we actually have - but I keep it minimal so it looks neater that way.
Often they say “how do you like that LITTLE camper” ? I’m tempted to say “how do you like your HUGE camper” ?
One guy asked if it LEAKS. He caught me off guard with that one but if someone asks that again, I’m going to say “No, does yours” ?

Well if you're going to buy a small Aliner camper, then you have to expect most folks to question how it works out for you. I mean they are definitely cute but not for everyone.
We like our huge camper a lot! thanks for asking. (Although I would just call it larger, not huge)

There are always going to be those people who will never understand why everyone else doesn’t want the same thing they want or have. And yes, some will look down their noses at anyone who has “less” than they have. Those people simply aren’t worth your time. Give a simple answer and move along and let them be what they are.

Since we don't have a "Like" button on this forum, I'll just quote this and say, "I like it."

Unless there is more to the story that you haven't shared, I think you are simply being oversensitive.

Compared to even a modest house, a big 40ft RV is a small living space, so one less than a quarter that size is legitimately tiny.

As far as leaks...you have an origami roof. It's a logical question regarding how how it keeps the water out.

Kind of like some of the questions we get about our Smart car, it IS a small Mercedes believe it or not.

Did you get the "cozy" comment yet?

I have tent camped on a motorcycle, used a popup for years and now a travel trailer and heard plenty. You should feel sorry for those that are trapped in their self imposed world.

Yes, a Daimler product, built in France. Too bad they killed them in the US. Much like the A-liner, they serve a purpose in the marketplace.

I hear from popup and folding trailer owners that they often feel like second class citizens and think that owners of bigger rigs look down their noses at them. At the same time, if they move on to a TT or such, they call it an "upgrade".

I have a small folding trailer. I don't feel like a second class citizen. It works for me and that's all that matters. None of my camper buys have been an upgrade - they've just been what worked at the time.

If someone calls it little? Well it is. If someone calls it cozy? Well it is. Why take offense at the truth?

They didn't kill them...they just never sold very well. They are still available and being updated for Europe.

As you say, they serve a purpose but that purpose largely doesn't exist in the USA. Their primary purpose is to be able to park in a tiny spot.
